  1. Hi,
    I tried the above Method1. Odin3 gave the error “Serial Port (COM) not open” and 1 thread succeeded and 1 failed. My phone is now stuck at the samsung logo and wont start, Kindly help.

  2. Thsi file seems to be a complete firmware file.
    So mine is i9505, and the post is for 9500.
    I think that firmware are different for the devices( 9500 and 9505).
    Are you sure I can use it on 9505 ?
